Scouting Report

AssetsA driven player with nice defensive skills: can play all over the infield and outfield. Drives the ball the other way, with occasional power. Has quick feet in the field. Makes solid contact and doesn't strike out a lot.
FlawsIsn't always able to catch up to inside fastballs, so he generally doesn't provide a lot of home-run power. Lacks consistency on offense and can run too hot and cold sometimes with the stick.
Career potentialSolid veteran infielder.
